Subject: MathML entity references support in DITA 1.3


We've had two companies so far which want to use DITA 1.3 because of the default MathML support but they also want to use entity references in the MathML content. The MathML DTDs have a rich set of entity definitions but the decision seems to have been to remove the possibility of using those entities when MathML is embedded in DITA content. Could this be reconsidered? The specification does not seem to state that the MathML which can be embedded by default in DITA cannot use entity references. So maybe the MathML DTDs bundled with the DITA 1.3 standard could be just edited to remove this limitation. The "mathml3-ditadriver.dtd" explicitly ignores these entities by redefining a certain parameter entity:

<!ENTITY % mathml-charent.module "IGNORE" >
